I cant wait for the tears!

I am already creating a spreadsheet to keep track of the number of people griefed/can flipped into unsubscribing.

Inappropriate comments removed. Zymurgist


Keep the blinders on, brother.

The Japanese will make the Russians look like kindergarten kids. You have no idea of the amount of American tears that will be spread on the forums if this comes to pass.

Hi, Taedrin

Originally by: Taedrin
In fact, Japanese players will be able to bypass NEXON entirely and do business directly with CCP. The only thing is that CCP's websites will be English - not Japanese.


"Can we bypass Nexon or not ?" is one of the major concerns of Japanese EVE players right now.
Do you have any link to the source of this information ? Thank you.


I have to admit, I'm only going on common sense here. In order to make bypassing NEXON impossible, CCP would have to prevent IP addresses originating from Japan from accessing certain portions of their website. IIRC, CCP doesn't even do this to Chinese IP addresses who have their own server. The thought of CCP doing this to their Japanese customers, but not their Chinese customers is quite illogical.

Also, this would screw over their non-Japanese customers in Japan (such as those who work at the embassy, military bases, moved to Japan because of their work, or moved to Japan because their parent/guardian had to move to Japan for one reason or another).


I see. Thanks Taedrin Very Happy

For now, it seems all I can do is just wait for CCP to say something about this.

What's the big deal? There's already quite a few Japanese players in-game. So they localize the client and get a few more, so what?

Jesus Christ, some people will whine and speculate about everything and anything these days. This just= potentially more players in EVE. Great. More people to shoot at. Nexon knows how to handle the Asian market. Let them do the PR stuff. Who cares?

Does the playerbase really need CCP to announce it to them personally before anyone else? It barely affects you besides the language that some newer players may know. What an entitlement complex some of you have.

If they convert it to the Koreans as well there will be a problem for Screegs, if they play like the games they play and the stories I heard, they are practically living bots!

Funny that whenever I see a bot site link for a KR game, the site is always in English.

Perhaps you could pull your head out of your racist little ass and look at the world for a change.

Good idea, localization is key.

But,
- How big of an influx are you expecting?
- Do you have the hardware ready to handle that influx?
- What if your estimates are crap (lets face it, you don't get these things right very often) and influx is quadruple of expected?

We going to have to suffer for weeks/months while you scramble to install new bling at the farm?

I'd just like to welcome any new Japanese players to the Eve community.

As the unofficial mascot of the Molden Heath region, I would like to invite you all to this wonderous, beautifull, and safe low security region of the Eve universe. We are all very friendly over here and ready to help you in your missions anytime you need us to. You need mining help? Just ask in local! We will come running.

I would also like to encourage you to buy plex, lots of plex, to convert into isk so you can buy the biggest ships as fast as you can. Dont worry that you have medium guns on that battleship you just bought because as the women always say, size doesnt matter, and that is also true in Eve.

The lowsec Molden Heath region welcomes you with open arms. We look forward to seeing you here!

While Japanese already play (kicked a Japanese corp out of a wormhole last week), it will be nice to see an attempt to do localized marketing to them. There is a big difference between some weird game centered around another language, and a game that reaches out to your demographic.

EVE is kinda empty when us poor west coast players stay up late.

Japanese players will be coming to TQ? OK cool! But I have a question. Can TQ handle the number of new players that they might expect...oh say 50k+?


This made me laugh! 0.0 battles reported to CCP in advance can barely handle it now and I'm being generous.

Japanese influence down the road for potential powerblock in 0.0 does sound good though.

I say good luck to the Japanese they will soon see how CCP cannot release a patch that works and constantly **** up their own game and community.

I for one welcome a larger player base, all welcome our technical, anime, and capitalist specialist of tomorrow!

Question tho. Does this mean CCP will add more garbage space ( Npc or Otherwise empty sov stomping ) and/or another blood line to game?

I'm all for making the game very large and difficult to navigate again by adding 10,000 systems and re-aligning stargates! Remember! Vast, Empty, Hostile and WTF did a corpse just hit the external camera, dammit dead people.. Sansha invasion hard held npc space of doom!?
Well there's always hoping but who knows =p

To tomorrow fellow pod pilots and the wonderful future it brings!

LOL.....surprises me that I haven't seen any rage about this yet....CCP partnering with nexon? Nexon is THE paramount f2p/p2w company out there....I play a few of their games and each one, they really make it so you have to pay to have an even footing with other gamers.



Nexon is responsible for Atlantica Online (Strategy-Turn MMORPG) which is cash shop driven entirely. Bad news indeed. Atlantica community HATES them 10x more than any rage i've seen here.

Japanese language support is huge for the average Japanese gamer. Only the most educated a/o wordly Japanese people are very comfortable with English. It's not like Europe - one can live one's entire life in Japan without ever needing a foreign language. Plus, the official wiki will (probably) get Japanese support. Can you imagine trying to learn how to play this game entirely via Google Translate from Japanese documentation? Same thing in reverse.

All I can say is this,

I already have 2 coprmates that live in japan that play eve online.


All this partnership is doing is just promoting eve in Japan to get a ton of more players.

More players means the following.

More income to ccp to hire more developers to work on their games, which means more content done faster.

more people to be scammed
more redshirts
more targets
more suckers
more people to stab in the back.

most likely more plexes on the market which means prices come down and then the rest of the world can play for free while they pay for our accounts.

also
more tears
more rage
more lulz.

EDIT.. added in the Wiki if anyone interested in seeing it: Eve Japanese Wiki

What is new here really? Japanese language option has been on the test servers for a few year. At least 2 years ago, I was playing with it when I saw the option. The translation was not the BEST, but was not too bad. There are a few Japanese alliances on eve and has been for many years. Is there more to Nexus for this other than advertising Eve, keeping the client translation updated, and distributing DUST 514?? Easy to see that there has been a Japanese chat channel for years, although most I knew on it left.

Take a look at the Japanese EveWiki pages that the Japanese made... They are better than CCPs, because they found the bugs and added in workarounds. Typical in Japan, as the documentation is second to none really. It explains things very clearly. 100% player made and updated with every update translated and explained. Along with the bugs and everything else.

Any publicity is good, but really this is just releasing the Japanese language version officially now with support. Unless I missed something, not much to look at here.
